According to Deadlists, "This list is for the real 10-13-68 (see comments for [Deadlist's] 10-12-68)"; not FM broadcast KPFA-Berkeley - tapes of a broadcast of 10/12/68 circulate mislabeled as 10/13/68.

My main year seeing shows was 1971, but I love '68 and '69 jams. Here we have a fine, fine jam out of William Tell into the Eleven. God bless the Grateful Dead (and Charlie Miller too).

Thanks Mr. Miller. Very good show, a bit short.

I will say Wow too. Not often you say skip Dark Star/St. Stephen, but maybe use it as a warmup to...The Eleven. They purely rip! Happy Birthday Avalon show!
